This one-hour presentation will cover a variety of topics relating to mortuary law, with a focus on both state and federal regulations of the funeral industry. By exploring current trends in mortuary litigation, including an analysis of some particular cases that have resulted in astronomically high plaintiff’s verdicts in recent years, attendees will gain a heightened awareness of their own potential exposure to liability as death care professionals, while being guided through the concepts of risk management and developing best practices, with an emphasis on being proactive rather than reactive. There will also be a discussion about the importance of communicating effectively with families, as well as mitigation tactics to decrease the likelihood of a lawsuit being filed if and when a mistake does occur.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE: Each person should register independently. Please note that credit (if available) is only provided to registered attendees participating at their own computer and/or phone using their confirmation login link. The link should not be shared with others, it is unique to you.

Call Craig at OFDA 614-486-5339 or 800-589-6332 for details on how to register three or more attendees and receive a member discount.

Please Note: The one hour of continuing education will satisfy the required topic – Laws and Rules.
